But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the green thing back then?

We didn’t have “the green thing,” but we did have other things.

Social Networking Game: Empire Avenue


If you’re following the feeds in my sidebar, you’ll see that I’m usually active in places other than here.  This is the place I kick off my shoes and relax.

Empire Avenue logoI check in once a day at Empire Avenue (EA), an on-line social networking game modelled after the stock market, using social media presence to drive share prices.  I’m there as TMSocial.   One can sign up as either a person or business (I don’t know what would promote one over the other, other than psychology).  My current EA social media assets are a combination of TechMag Social‘s and my own, mostly because that’s the mix I was logged into when I signed up.  You pick your “industry” and earn titular promotions in that industry, as well as earning general game achievements.

The concept reminds me a bit of Blogshares.  It’s a cool game and and an interesting social network.  I seem to be doing fine there and I haven’t needed to spend a lot of time on it.

For me, the beauty is that my game standing benefits from my social media activities, and these are more vital to me than playing a game.  Further, my Twitter FF is growing organically from it (well, I hope it’s organic …).

Warm fuzzy feelings all around.
